Crews Pull Man from Truck in Creek

FALL CREEK, Ore. — Rescue crews pulled a man from a truck that had gone into the frigid waters of Little Fall Creek.

The crash happened Tuesday afternoon on a Weyerhaeuser Road.

Deputies say the Weyerhaeuser employee lost control of his truck and went off an embankment. It rolled and then went into the creek. Fire crews say the truck landed on its wheels. They had to cut the door off the truck to get him out.

The Lane County Sheriff’s Office says the man went to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
